Event Details

The last day of February has been designated as Rare Disease Day in Massachusetts to call attention to the public health issues associated with rare diseases, which affect nearly 30 million Americans and countless others around the world. The event recognizes Rare Disease Day and the research being done in Massachusetts to treat and cure rare disease. Alone we are rare, together we are strong. MassBio’s agenda features two panels with different points of view of the issue: a patient panel, which will discuss the struggles beyond diagnosis and treatment; and an industry panel, which will focus on how the biotech and pharma industry is going beyond treatment to healing the whole patient, as well as supporting the caregivers.
